Why Online shooters suck and why gears 3 is the best multiplayer shooter around
The following is my opinion as im as entitled to have one as everybody else .Comments and discussion on this topic are welcome .But im not looking for a war of words with Trolls or Fanboys. Life's too short.

Ive been playing games for 25 years .I love games of all genres and have a " ill try anything once " attitude.Im good at some games and i really suck at others.

Ive played quite a bit of online shooters since i came to 360 and XBL.But im pretty bad at most of them and i don't stick with them very long.

the reason for this is 3 fold.
1. Most online shooters have little or no achievements connected to them.
2.I suck at them so its hard it enjoy games when your getting killed LOTS
3. (and here's the rub ) Most online shooters are not a level playing field.

To explain what i mean im going to use the COD multiplayer as my example .Take your pick which one they haven't changed that much this generation.But i could have used the Bad Company games ,Crysis 2,Medel of Honer or Homefront to name but a few.

In COD The good player can only get better and the not so good or casual players doesn't have a chance to improve much.

Here's how that works :

The better you are the more kills you get so you level up fast.
The better you are the more perks ,killsteaks ,equipment and better weapons you unlock as you level up.

This means that the good players have a massive advantage over the poor and/or casual player before any given game starts .All this before you factor it there higher original skill at the game.

This just leaves the poor and causal players not able to get many kills or level up quickly .With all the benefits that brings. While getting killed loads and not having much fun doing it.

Having played Gears of War 3 online this week im so happy to find a game that does things differently.

If you haven't played it here's how.

Gears has no weapon unlocks,No perks ,No killsteaks and No equipment unlocks.At the start of every game or after you die you can choose between 3 different rifles and 2 different shotguns to arm yourself with.That goes for all your opponents too.All other weapons are picked up ingame and you can be guided to the with a press of the left bumper.So all games start level .Same guns and same opportunity to get better ones.Your still going to get killed by players with higher skill and knowledge of the game but at least it feels fair.Best of all Gears has a Causal mode so new players can learn to play the game with other new players until the game decides that your good enough to play against the big boys.


Ive had so much fun playing gears and EPIC should be congratulated for there handling of this part of what is a great game.

If only other shooters had the same idea online gaming would only get better for us all.
